15 Best Restaurants in Ubud
Pukako Panini & Coffee - to say this was our favorite spot might be an understatement, with it's proximity to our Airbnb we stopped here multiple times. we loved their chicken cordon bleu, avocado panini with chicken, culture shock juice (strawberry and banana), smoothie bowl, bacon & egg toast...really anything on their menu is fantastic!
Ikigai - located right next door to Pukako Panini and Coffee, this sushi spot is one of the busiest restaurants in Ubud for dinner, we splurged here getting a fried tofu appetizer and 4 rolls of sushi - and there was nothing left on our plates by the end
Tropical, an International Restaurant - located right on the edge of one of many arts and crafts markets in town, we stopped here not really expecting much, however, their "american brekkie" and fresh juices and smoothies were delicious!
Pho Sarabong & Yoora Kimbap - two restaurants in one, we stopped here for the kimbap! (although the pho looked amazing too!) - we loved their "original kimbap," which although it was quite different than kimbap in the traditional sense, was delicious!
Cool Monkey Frozen Yogurt - we found this spot on our walk to the Monkey Forest Ubud, and although there are endless possibilities we recommend the mango self serve ;)
Acai Queen - an incredible acai smoothie bowl spot, that serves a huge amount of fresh fruit on top of their acai! in addition to having some of the cutest smoothie bowls, they also have a cute cafe with swings!
Kinta Ramen - a delicious ramen house! what more do I need to say ;)
Malditos - a hidden gem that was surprisingly not too busy, we actually loved it though! with warm, fresh churros, ice cream, and fruit flavoring on the bottom this became one of our favorite after dinner treats!
Satria Agrowisata 2 - ok so this is definitely not a restaurant, or a cafe, however if you're looking to try the infamous poop coffee (luwak coffee) that is nicknamed the most expensive coffee in the world, then we recommend stopping here! it's a little out of town but for no cost at all you can try an entire array of teas and coffees! (the luwak coffee itself is not included, but can be purchased for 50,000 IDR if you're up for trying it!)
Warung Siam - a fantastic thai food spot that is ALWAYS busy, seriously, every time we walked by the restaurant was entirely full, typically with some people waiting outside. we got the thai milk tea (incredible), tofu & veggies with rice, and the pad thai - all of which were delicious!
Oops Ubud - an ice cream place this is also typically very busy, you can find this spot on the main road in town if you're looking to stop for a sweet treat
Ubud Kitchen Juice Bar - my favorite smoothie bowl spot in town, their smoothie bowls are completely customizable with large portions, plus each smoothie bowl comes out in a hear shaped bowl!
Daily Baguette - we found this spot on our last morning in Ubud, with fresh baked goods, sandwiches, bagels, and sweets, we wish we would have found it sooner!
Cooking Class - another stop that is not a restaurant or cafe, however an experience we highly recommend if you're looking to try some delicious local food! We went through this cooking class, and had such a fun time making about 10 traditional Balinese dishes!

Places for Next Time, and Places to Avoid
Other Places to Try - obviously there are too many places in Ubud to try them all, some places we're saving for next time include the Taco Cartel, The Blue Door, and Watercress - all of which looked great!
The Spell Creperie - this is one stop we recommend avoiding - we stopped for their banana chocolate crepe and it really wan't impressive
